    In September 2020, we kicked off the community feedback portion of our draft Strategic Plan 2020-23 by sharing an RFI. The RFI was for community partners to commit to facilitating online gatherings within the community to share the plan and hold space for discussion and feedback. The following community groups signed up. Additionally, our Board of Education Directors held online groups as well. Groups were held between October and Decemeber 2020; we are grateful for everyone who participated!
